LONG BEACH — Expect some shenanigans this weekend as drag queens will dress in their Sunday best and Easter bonnets and stroll along Broadway making stops and taking shots for charity.
Celebrating its 21st anniversary, Easter Walk Long Beach is an annual fundraiser for the C.A.R.E. Program, the region’s largest HIV/AIDS treatment program. All money raised will be given directly to the C.A.R.E. Program.
On Saturday, Hamburger Mary’s Long Beach will host the event’s 21th anniversary party at 7 p.m.
Easter Walk Long Beach was founded by Rick White in 1997. He retired from the event about 15 years ago.
White passed the Easter bonnet to drag diva Jewels, who has been mistress of ceremonies.
Here are the seven venues that will participate on Sunday in Easter Walk Long Beach:
- 11 a.m. Hamburger Mary’s

- 3 p.m. Sweetwater Salon
- 4 p.m. The Falcon
